Joint USAF/NOAA Report of Solar and Geophysical Activity
SDF Number 262 Issued at 2200Z on 19 Sep 2010
IA. Analysis of Solar Active Regions and Activity from 18/2100Z
to 19/2100Z: Solar activity was very low with only B-class activity
observed. Region 1106 (S20W34) and Region 1108 (S30E36) exhibited
little change during the period.
IB. Solar Activity Forecast: Solar activity is expected to be
predominately very low. A chance of C-class activity, with a slight
chance of M-class activity, is possible for the next three days (20
– 22 September).
IIA. Geophysical Activity Summary 18/2100Z to 19/2100Z:
The geomagnetic field was quiet.
IIB. Geophysical Activity Forecast: The geomagnetic field is
expected to be quiet for day one (20 September). Quiet to unsettled
levels, with isolated active periods, are expected on day two (21
September). Mostly unsettled, with isolated active to minor storm
levels, are expected on day three (22 September). The increase in
activity is due to a large, recurrent coronal hole high speed
